Cutting dados for stretchers. I finally sharpened my new Kobalt 5/8” chisel and I am taking my time removing the waste. Also being real careful not to cut below the mark on depth.
All cut for one side of one horse and laying on the work surface (uprights are on the wrong side – it fit much better with them switched to the correct side (reversed).
Stretchers fit nicely.
Gaps aren’t too big or wide. Good for saw bench/saw horse.
And it stands up on it’s own without any help from glue, clamps, or screws (yet anyway). And it’s square!
Glue added to stretcher joints and held together with “bunk bed” screws.
